Lynn University’s Safety Precautions Amidst the Pandemic
With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, Lynn University has implemented various changes to prevent the spread of the virus.
On March 20, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an order closing most businesses in Broward and Palm Beach counties to help slow the spread of the virus. As a result, Lynn University’s residence halls closed on March 21, and the campus itself closed on March 23. Academic services and most other university operations will be provided virtually.
On March 16, all undergraduate and graduate classes moved online. Because of Lynn’s mobile, digital and collaborative curriculum delivered through the iPad program, a shift to online learning will allow students to stay on track in their academic programs.
“As an independent, small and flexible institution, Lynn is able to craft solutions for our students that look different than state schools,” said President Kevin M. Ross.
Athletics competitions have been suspended for the remainder of the spring semester in accordance with recommendations from the NCAA Board of Governors. All campus events have been suspended for the time being, including Alumni Weekend, Kishi Con, all Admissions events and Conservatory performances.
Lynn University is directing students, employees and visitors to follow CDC travel guidelines, including avoiding all non-essential travel and staying at home after traveling through areas with Level 3 CDC travel notices.
